Do I need OracleMTSRecoveryService [message #602696] Fri, 06 December 2013 19:43 Go to next message

I tried to install oracle client for windows with version win32_11gR2_client, win64_11gR2_client on my windows workstation.
But I also had older version 11gR1 installed on the computer.
After I install the new version on a separate folder, and it seems runs fine.
Then I tried to delete the older version folder 11gR1 to save some space on my computer, but it says like : cannot delete because the file is in use.

I then found out in the windows service panel there is a service called OracleMTSRecoveryService: that points to c:\oracle\product\11.1.0\client_64\bin\omtsreco.exe "OracleMTSRecoveryService"
So I stop the service and then I can delete the older version folder.

Now I tried to see if the service can point to the new version of omtsreco.exe, but there is not such a file in my new version folders of client.
Why is that, I searched in 11gR2 bin folder and all other folders, there is not such a file.
Do I need to run the OracleMTSRecoveryService on my workstation, what is it for?
